While this rug was beautiful, and soft, and great to walk on, it had a little problem: it shed. Now, at first we were not too worried, as other rugs we've had did a bit of that, but this big, red rug sent balls of fluff every day, week, month and year. We have finally given up on Big Red, and he's ready for the dumpster. He has also taken out our vacuum cleaner, twice, with his mondo shedding. We cannot recommend it to anyone.
I ordered this rug less than a year ago. It was a beautiful rug, but after 6 months it developed a couple of holes and is still shedding constantly. This rug needs to be replaced all ready. It does not wear at all. It might be OK under a table or a low traffic area, but it did not last in my family room
Very similar to the name brand version you can buy at a certain store. The wool feels great and the "wine" color is wonderful. It's a nice deep red. The picture online doesn't do the color justice. Have only had the rug for 2 days so it's too early to tell but I haven't had any shedding problems yet like others described.
